Calls For Lesotho's Thabane to Quit as Army Leaves Streets

Lesotho's coalition government has agreed with South African mediators and other stakeholders, on a guaranteed "dignified, graceful and secure retirement" for embattled Prime Minister Thomas Thabane who has been under pressure to leave office over suspicions that he had a hand in the murder of his estranged wife in 2017. Thabane has also been criticised for sending soldiers onto the streets of the capital, Maseru, to "restore order" before  withdrawing them.
